What Options Do Wrongfully Terminated Employees Have In Glendale?

Employees who are victims of wrongful termination have several options. One is to file a complaint with the appropriate government agency, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and your state’s equivalent government agency. Based on careful investigation and application of state law, the employee may also have recourse in a wrongful termination lawsuit. An attorney can evaluate your situation and make recommendations based on more than our expertise in negotiating and litigating these specific types of cases. When evaluating a case, our attorneys consider things such as:

Existing company policies, written or oral, describing disciplinary and termination procedures.

Other relevant criteria.

You will receive an honest assessment of your situation and legal options. Once a determination is made, our lawyers will assist you in taking the next steps toward protecting your rights.
